1.  The Brothers Karamazov (Penguin Classics) by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Crime and Punishment (Penguin Classics)
2.  Crime and Punishment (Penguin Classics) by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The list author says:

The Collected Tales of Nikolai Gogol

Death And The Penguin (Panther)
6.  Death And The Penguin (Panther) by Andrey Kurkov

The Rasputin File
7.  The Rasputin File by Edvard Radzinsky

What is to be Done? (Twentieth Century Classics)
8.  What is to be Done? (Twentieth Century Classics) by V. I. Lenin
